Super Saturday Sales

Fill a box for $5 and that is what we did: Mr. Ken and all of his " techy stuff." This was part of the box sale. Cool Christmas goodies---love the snowman. More goodies--the muffin tins will be used as a candle holder (green) and a drawer organizer (tan.) I have put the glass boel to use as another candle holder. Have yet to do anything with the LARGE green bowl. Suggestions??? Aren't these cute? They are place- card holders. From Crate and Barrel. They are waiting for Halloween. Misc. goodies--sewing patterns, cross stitch patterns books and some really cute wedding wrapping paper. A plaid table runner, white fabric, and a black and white scarf. I didn't realize till we got home that the plaid fabric was already a runner. I needed some white for a lining--whoohoo and the scarf will go on my black purse. EVERYTHING you have seen came out of the box except the roll of wrapping paper. **************************************** Goodwill finds: this may be a repeat-- if so sorry. The silver napkin holder is now holding scrapbook paper in the "new and improved " sewing room. The flower teacup is there too. Today we stopped at a couple of sales. At one I found several bags of pony beads. $1. Great for school crafts!
We hit a church sale also and they
were having a special--fill a bag
for $7.
AND that's what I did!!!!!
Speckled eggs, three red buckets, a red
tin, candle holders, Pick up Sticks, an
egg shaped Santa, a plant holder, bubble
gum machine and a caddy for markers at school.
The gum machine will start holding
buttons that I will not use. For decoration
only.
Gooseberry cookbooks--Merry Mixes.
Books and two dolls for school.
Plates, vases and candle holders to make
those stands that EVERYONE is making.
There is a mystery with the three plates
though.
They are made by: Royal Albert
Bone China England--Lavender
Rose.
BUT!!!! There is a hole in the
middle of each plate!
Who knows why???? I'll just
have to cover the hole when they
are used.
That bag held a lot!
****************************************
THAT'S ALL FOLKS!!!!!

  1. I LOVE that mousie wrapping paper! Your R.A. Lavender Rose plates must have been a three-tiered tea-sandwich tray at one time. It should be easy enough to pick up a new handle for it. :-) Lavender Rose is one of my favorite patterns! Lucky find for you!!!!

  2. I'm sure your 3 mystery plates were once a 3 tier cake holder. I have one and there are metal pieces that go through each piece to create the holder.

  4. Perhaps you could make a clock out of the plate with the hole. go to Michaels and get a quartz movement, and Voila!
